Did you vote for ice cream?

Allegedly this came from a teacher in Nashville.

We are worried about 'the cow' -- when it is all about the 'Ice Cream.
The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was
while teaching third grade this year.
The presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest.
I decided we would have an election for a class president.
We would choose our nominees.
They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote.
To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members.

Apple iPhone 4 pissed off user revenge....

Wish I could draw, came up with a terrific idea for a comic strip, ok imaginations required;

Guy standing at a urinal doing his business.
Schmuck with Iphone4 on his belt walks in and starts to use urinal beside him.
Schmuck glances at dudes face and says "Hey your Steve Jobs!"
Steve closes his eyes, grunts "Yes, I am."

Villa Rica High School Dress Code Debate

So here in Villa Rica the local high school has been proposing a new dress code. They want to force kids to wear what amounts to uniforms. Make no mistake that code will be put in place. Its been very clear to bystanders that the formality of discussing things with the public has been just that, a formality. They will pass this dress code no matter what the public thinks. But I am getting ahead of myself. I decided to voice my opinion to the board. Here is the letter I wrote and sent to the board.

Distinguished members of the board,

A word to the wise, or just any retailer paying attention.

It's starting to happen. It is the Christmas holiday shopping season. With times being tough the barginistas are out in full force. They are scouring ever inch of the earth for a deal and fair warning they are rabid in their determination.

Health Care Reform, Random Thoughs From An Average Guy

Are you for or against health care reform? Then you are STUPID!

There, now some of you will read that and say ummm, ok, he said whether we are for or against health care reform we are stupid, why would he do that? Some of you are now in a blind rage because I attacked your side of the argument. Regardless of your position for a good percentage of you I have made a point.

Craigslist Scams, now involving the US Military

So I have been looking for a truck. As a natural result I turned to Craigslist to look. Be warned, there are TONS of scammers on Craigslist. Out of 7 trucks I have tried to make contact on 3 have been flat out scams (and the only ones to contact me back). How can you spot a scam? Some are Easy. These two trucks had the same response almost word for word.

Apple Pisses On Green Movment In Favor of $$$$

Yep you got it, you have probably already heard this but let me recap it for you from an angle you may not have considered. Apple has released a new Ipod Shuffle. Its the smallest one yet.

It has one fatal flaw though.

Its so small that it has no controls on the unit, they are on the headphone cable. Still not a huge deal because you figure you could use a headphone adapter of some sort and still have functionality?


Symantec learns about Streisand effect

So it seems that Symantec is making one of those Epic Stupid decisions that just cant be replicated outside of an ostrich putting its head in the sand.

Seems a file named Pifts.exe has been trying to phone home for some folks and they traced it back to Symantec. Evidently Symantec views Pifts.exe as some dirty little secret and deleted the posts and accounts that these people made in Symantec's forums..

Windows 7 upgrade for Windows XP users

Well some of you know I am a big Linux advocate, but I also realize that other OS's have their own niche and we cant always be ripping Windows "from their cold dead hands" every day.

You think you're special or something?

So today, we had a good day. Went and hung out at my in laws, and then stopped at our favorite buffet on the way home, lets for the sake of the company call it Silver Pen. As we were finishing up our meal, our waitress (lets caller her Clair) was cleaning the table next to ours. She was discussing how her night had been with another waitress(lets call her Beth).

Clair: So how have your tables been?
Beth: Oh let me tell you about my table that just left!
Clair: Oh Oh. What happened?!?
